Our story begins in 2006 with the renovation and rehab of a small condo project in Columbia Heights DC and the philosophy to always put design and quality first. Over the years Madison has successively completed multiple projects, many of them award winning and now produces some of the most sought-after ground-up new construction projects in the District.
Madison is propelled by the vision of our founders, Sia and Barry Madani. Behind them is a versatile team that fuses expertise from diverse sectors. Our management team has worked together in Washington D.C. and its surrounding markets in varying capacities for over 25 years.
The progressive growth of Madison’s experience and expertise matches the trajectory of our company’s burgeoning portfolio. As a company that is vertically integrated our hands-on approach to development is and always has been of the outmost importance to us. From acquisition through to design and construction, our projects are our most important creations and our residents and homebuyers are our most valued measure of success, thus we treat each one with tremendous care.
